I have been trying to use it for a couple of days (http://www.rae.es/) and I get an error ("Esta página web no está disponible") every time i look up a word. Is anyone experiencing this?

Regards,
Daniel.

Thanks for the effort. For some reason I get the same error message (even with the link you provided) with Chrome and Internet Explorer.

I even erased cookies and temps file with no luck.

So I guess I won't be able to translate anymore.icon_smile.gif)

They're having some problems Feb 2, 2015

The RAE twitter account mentions they are having problems with the dictionary that they are trying to solve.

Tested it just now Feb 3, 2015

Hi,
I tested the dictionary just now and it worked fine. I accessed it from Brazil with Mozilla.
Maybe there is some problem with the Spanish provider.
Whatever it is I hope it gets fixed soon!

Use several browsers Feb 3, 2015

Chrome failed to open the page a couple of times, but then I switched to Opera. If the latter failed, I used Explorer.

The fact is that they have been having problems with their website, but nothing that “browser hopping” cold not solve.
